Red Carpet

No not for celebs, but for cyclists in Antwerp. At least that’s what the municipality claims there’re gonna do in the near future. In concrete a red asphalt layer will be placed out over 3,7 km so every road user knows you can’t overtake a biker here. The chosen route also avoids as many traffic lights as possible. Sounds like a good idea, but who’s going to enforce the new traffic rules and how will the biker’s red carpet be spread over town? The current communicated version only shows routes from the north and the east. Sounds poorly… One of the red carpets is really close to my cycling road to work. Looking forward to test it!
